Shes a sneaky one...
Okay, Okay, I could not take it any longer... I must... post... my hat!!! I confess I did send it out later then the set due date because of some technical difficulties with some of the details, so therefore I have waited extra long to share the completed project with you all. Not that it is very important to your or anything, I thought I would finally post the pictures of the hat I made for Speckled Eggs Halloween Hat swap. Since it is just one more week until Halloween, and of course since I have been deserting you to the MAX, I thought I could quite possibly, make it up to you? I promise this is not the only thing that will come in the future. More "In the Kitchens" and perhaps even a few "Fashion Fridays" tucked in the schedule as well. I dont want to ruin anything, but hint.. hint.. my 50th post is coming up soon, just in time for the holidays!! I am going to try to make it to 100 posts before my blogs 1 year anniversary!! That is now my goal, and I promise I will try to reach it!!
Alrighty, now back to the hat... I took your basic party hat cone shape, made one out of heavy duty scrapbook paper, and then added some shredded paper, glitter, vellum, and all that jazz. A few squiggly eyes later, Voila! I was going for more of a vintage inspired Halloween, the classic colors, plus some sheet music and tea stained papers. I really love how it turned out, and I hope my partner Robyn loved it as much as I do. It was really hard to part with, and I believe that the UPS arrival date said Wednesday October 25th, so I'm patiently awaiting what she thinks. I also added a card (not shown) and a goody bag of some scrumptious candies.. Yummo, candy corn how I love thee!! Okay, now on with the rest of the pictures; enjoy the eye candy (pardon the pun!) Until next time wishing you goody bags full of candy corn and Halloween inspirations!
